I can't leave the Reds alone...sorry.
Am I the only one who finds this whole issue of Liverpool in the Champions League highly entertaining?
A few weeks ago, I posted that Liverpool should take TNS up on their offer to play a pre-qualification round with them
. Of course, that idea was rejected by all the sport's governing bodies. But as fate would have it, guess who Liverpool drew in the first round?
Ya gotta love the irony.
...and just to make things more amusing, TNS are now looking at playing their home leg at Goodison
. Too bad it won't happen, but I can hear the Welsh cash registers ringing from here. They are gonna milk this matchup for every penny they can get. Good luck to them.
I guess everyone ends up a winner. Liverpool get to defend their Cup. TNS get their big payday. But I still wonder who got bumped to make room for the Scousers.
